Get ready to turn around and buy another set in no time. I ordered a pair for the rear of the car early last year and the tread was gone after just 6K miles. What's worse is that it wasn't even the hottest time of year and all I did was around-town, moderately-aggressive driving; no track time or burnouts and that was BEFORE I had my 4.10 gears! Since then, my Continental Extreme Contact DWS tires are just now ready to go in the rear, after 15K miles; the fronts still have good tread. They grip surprisingly good for all-season tires and they've lasted longer than the Invos or stock Pirellis (got just 10K out of those for the rear)... Best of luck!

I dont know how yours went so fast, but mine and a lot of people i know lastly a long time. I am still running on them with about 80% still left and gone through way more than 6k miles. Also putting down close to 600rwhp. The tires have awesome grip, performance, quite, longevity, and looks.

I use to have a set of Nitto Invos in a Charger SRT8, the car had 500 whp and I loved the tires, imho they worked great, they are awesome in watter, they are rated AAA and the every day ride was much softer than the stock tires... I loved them and would buy them again...

I've got over 15K miles on a set and I bet I get another 3-5K out of the rears. I drive the shit out my car too.

THANKS, I must say for us guys and gals who want a tire for GRIP were gonna pay and lose tread quicker, PERIOD.

I have no problem with that at all, I run the Toyo Ra1's on my 03 Griggs Racing Cobra and they are awesome. Just wanted to try the Invo's. Again thanks for the comments, keep em'coming if you dont mind taking a second..
